Come and See has got to be the most brutal and most realistic yet disturbing potrayal of war I have ever seen. It's as if Elements Klimov didn't direct a film but shot a live documentation of the events. The film is not your typical war that is antiwar or takes sides and make hero's out of it's characters. It only potrays war as it is and who were the victims,and that itself will leave a lasting impression to you.
And people still think Schindler's List is one of the best war films?this movie is honest.this movie doesn;t sell emotions,this movie doesn;t want to sell what people want to see in a war film,it's a serious movie,that shows exactly what people don;t want to see in a war film.the title says it all. Come and see! not come to a multiplex,crack some popcorn and see the bad nazi guys doing bad nazi stuff!
Haunting brutal raw unpolished insane visceral portrait of war infested Soviet Russia torn to absolutely shreds physically emotionally and spiritually with not even a bone left for a starving dog. A masterwork by far any means possible.
